Hi Lex, I know that night splints have helped a lot of people, but please be very careful with these. Pay attention to your limits and don't do anything that causes more pain. Stretching, as important as it is with most ailments, is extremely risky when it comes to the fascia. It is so easy to over stretch the fascia and cause more damage.
Hi Lex, Try Vionic shoes or the inserts. Amazon sells them. I've tried everything and had the surgery which has been a complete nightmare. Long story short, I finally decided to try these and they have been a god send!
I had my podiatrist make custom inserts for my feet as well. Especially because I have a leg length discrepancy. My right leg is 1/2 longer than my left leg which puts even more strain on my right foot with the PF. I can't wear them. They were more painful than any of the others that I tried. And believe me, I have tried so many. The very first ones that the Podiatrist gave me to try that mold to your feet. I tried cheap ones like Dr. Sholls. I bought very expensive ones from other websites. Nothing helped. Then I saw these and read the reviews. I said WTF, might as well try it and they have put me back on my feet. Now I can start concentrating on losing some of the damn weight that I gained from not being able to walk more than 100 steps per day.
I walked this past Sunday for the first time in so long!! I was able to do 2 miles! I have always been active and would powerwalk and do yoga and since this injury/then the stupid surgery which made it worse, I wasn't able to do either. I’m so happy I gave these a try. Heck what do you have to lose? Try them for $35. I was apprehensive at first since nothing else worked.
Don't have the surgery! It only causes more trauma to your foot. I ended up with a fractured talus bone as a result.
I wouldn't recommend surgery either. I cured my feet after limping for 8 months, and it has never come back. I know of a lot of other people who have had great results as well without having surgery. I know it's tough, I've been there. I've included the link to what I used, as well as the testimonial page so you can view other stories similar to your own. Wishing you all the best.
